Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The open access journal Viruses is devoting a special issue to the topic ‘morbillivirus infections’. Over the last decades we have seen exciting developments in this field. Global measles vaccination coverage has increased, resulting in a significant reduction in measles mortality. Moreover, in 2011 rinderpest virus was declared globally eradicated – only the second virus to be eradicated by targeted vaccination. However, other animal morbilliviruses continue to cause significant disease, both in wildlife and domestic animals. The identification of new cellular receptors and implementation of recombinant viruses expressing fluorescent proteins in different animal models have provided important new insights into the pathogenesis of morbillivirus infections, and their interactions with the host immune system.

In light of your expertise in the area of morbillivirus infections, I would like to invite you to submit a review article on your subject for this special issue.
